Vegan Tofu Nuggs


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 block firm tofu, pressed
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 ¼ cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder and onion powder 
  • ¼ paprika 
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs, GF if desired!

Instructions

  1. Press your tofu to remove as much water as possible. You can do this by wrapping your tofu in a clean cloth and adding something heavy on top to press out excess water. 
  2. In a bowl, combine the almond milk, almond flour, and spices. Mix well to form a nice thick batter! 
  3. In another bowl add the breadcrumbs.
  4. Cut your tofu into bite-sized pieces. Dip each piece of tofu into the wet batter and then into the breadcrumbs, being sure to fully coat the tofu in the breadcrumbs. 
  5. Repeat that with all of your tofu pieces.
  6. For EXTRA crunchy nuggs, lightly spray with some oil on the top (after breading) for that extra crispy deliciousness!
  7. If you’re using an oven, bake tofu nuggs at 375F for 35-40 minutes, flipping them over after the first 20 minutes.
  8. If you’re using an air fryer, bake nuggets at 375F for 25 minutes, shaking them halfway through. 
  9. Serve with your fav dipping sauce + enjoy! I liked mine with some vegan ranch and ketchup.
